Great PR for startups  - 
 
I need help with research for an article.

A fairly high ranking website (bplans.com) has requested an article about entrepreneurs who accepted equity financing for their startup and later regretted it.

If you were burned by investors in a prior startup I would love to talk to you.

As I want to focus on lessons learned, this is an opportunity for some PR for your new startup, if you're currently involved with one.

Please message me through Google+.

Thanks!

Lots of folks asking how to raise money and from where. Not as many asking simply if they should and exploring whether or not they meet the expectations of various sources of capital. I thought it was worth exploring the question so I hope others find this valuable too
Be in the business of creating value and investors will want to participate. But before wasting your time seeking funding, make sure you're clear why you need the funding, from where, and whether or not you can deliver to the expectations of that source of capital.

I spent a week living in an Airbnb apartment during my last trip to Colorado. My host was away, but I was informed that his roommate would be there all week. I introduced myself to the roommate upon arriving, and we talked for a few minutes about his startup. Shortly after, it occurred to me that I had forgotten his name. Rather than admit this and ask him to repeat it, I decided that I would hear his name again in the coming days. 

I didn’t, and after 24 hours, I was past the point of no return. I was going to spend the next 5 days living with a guy whose name I didn’t know.

Wow what a story. Pat, I would've asked lol I know sometimes it's embarrassing but you can play it off with "I'm sorry could you tell me your name again. I have trouble remembering names although faces is usually something I don't forget."

That's actually true for me lol

Sometimes its okay to kill a side project. Because it gives you the time and opportunity to look back at the learnings and move forward.
This is a great piece about knowing when to let go of a project. Hanging in there indefinitely is not a good thing always.

Red Baron Farm

self introductions (video optional)  - 
 
For two years now, going on three, I have had my own roadside stand for selling vegetables I raise in an innovative permaculture system. What you may not have known is the methods I developed (adapted from the awesome work of many agricultural scientists) were specifically designed to be scaleable to any size garden or farm. I now have an awesome opportunity to grow this to the next level in size, maybe with a generous grant from Chase to buy the farming equipment needed for a larger scale. There are a few abandoned farms directly adjacent to my market garden. One of them has traded a lease for me restoring the productivity of his farm and soil health. But it is about 40 acres and all is in terrible shape, incredibly poor soil and erosion and scrub. Completely unfit for agriculture and slowly deteriorating away. I know permaculture can regenerate this land and have already started on 1/2 acre. It will take a lot of money for equipment and hard work to get most that 40 acres productive again, but for sure permaculture methods are the way to go. The farm is too far gone to even try conventional methods. Long ago "farmed out" and due to Oklahoma weather patterns (flood or drought with little in between) it has actually deteriorated even worse since going fallow. 

I am excited to say two weeks ago I applied for a Chase small business grant. 

The next step in the process is to obtain 250 votes from people who would like to see my tiny farm grow to the next level. If I am accepted, I will use the grant money to purchase the labor saving equipment required to reach a moderate scale. This will allow me to prove the organic permaculture methods I am using to restore soil health work at scale. I also should be able to integrate carefully controlled modern animal husbandry in a Savory type Holistic managed planned grazing rotation with my veggies. (similar to Joel Salatin but concentrating on market vegetables)

Once I get 250 votes (it's free to vote so please help), then my application goes to the final step, the review process. 

The grant is for $100,000! That will allow me all the farm equipment I need to really get this truck farm operating in high gear! (all no till) I already have the landowner that is leasing me the land in exchange for clearing and regenerating soil health on board! So this could potentially be a huge break! I could potentially jump to 20 acres and even get the greenhouse I need all in 1 year! Any of you guys that feel what I am doing is interesting or important, please help out with a vote! 

Thanks in advance! 

Vote on the link below! It's easy and free!: Vote ! 

PS. If I should happen to get this grant and get this abandoned farm back into production, I intend to sink the profits from the farm into buying another adjacent abandoned farm of 58 acres. Maybe even a third abandoned farm also adjacent with 20 acres and an abandoned old concrete block building that was once a vegetable stand decades ago! Then I will start up an apprenticeship program to teach new young novice farmers the principles of permaculture and how to start their own farms from the bottom up. This will be just one more link in the growing conversion of agriculture worldwide! Thanks again.
